Private Prenatal Childbirth Preparation

Difficult Schedule?  Special Circumstances?  If you can’t find the right class to suit your needs, let us create a unique experience just for you!

Private Prenatal ClassesSome expectant parents have special needs with regards to childbirth preparation.  These needs may include a quickly approaching due date, medical concerns that make attending a regular class difficult, or even a challenging schedule leading up to baby’s arrival.  Private prenatal classes allow for added flexibility.

Over two 2-hour sessions, we will cover all the basics from labour to breastfeeding.  Our library of books and videos are also available for parents to view on their own and you will be given the opportunity to join one of our VGH tours.

All of our Childbirth Preparation classes were designed by trained and experienced childbirth educators who are also doulas and breastfeeding educators.  To learn more about the instructors who provide our prenatal and parenting courses, click here.

The curriculum for all of our prenatal classes is based on the Lamaze Six Healthy Birth Practices.  Topics are presented in a variety of ways, including discussion, hands-on practice, videos and couple work.  During your private session we will tailor our full course outline to suit your needs.  Topic covered will include:

  • the stages of labour
  • comfort measures
  • breathing awareness
  • medical interventions
  • pain medications
  • informed consent
  • the new mother and baby
  • breastfeeding
  • You should plan to attend a private session between your 30th and 38th week of pregnancy, but please register early in your second trimester to ensure we are able to meet your scheduling needs.
